Joyce Yang Performs Rachmaninoff and Schumann
Joyce Yang, piano
RACHMANINOFF: Piano Sonata No. 2 in
B-flat minor, Op. 36
Schumann's work is inspired by one of his favorite authors, E.T.A. Hoffmann. He composed the pieces to represent the duality of his personality – dreamer and passionate artist. The lush late Romanticism of Rachmaninoff’s Sonata has made this music appealing to audiences since its premiere.
